  3:06pm tomasz.:

hello Scott and pals! i'm listening at my favourite time of the day, Having Finished Work p.m.
  3:06pm Pas Musique:

Ah...well Barış Manço might be a better started than Abba "Dancing Queen" at half speed. But that could be a closer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm foofs:

No, it's just the way I stand...
  3:06pm tomasz.:

bless you!

A wacky high-lonesome eastern-euro Scheherazade.

Abba at half speed is the soundtrack to the junkie walk.
Avatar 3:16pm just dc pat or dcp-your choice:

you got that right @tomasz. Good friends of mine are Kiwis. The family was at our house during a snow storm once, mom told the daughter to put her boots on and she said "But theeer seeeking weeet!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Parq:

This is pretty much what the dot-com bust felt like.
  3:17pm Brendan:

I love the energy of this slowed down version. I dub thee 'Swamp Dancing Queen'
  3:17pm tomasz.:

man, this record owns at any speed

ciao, Scott, All! whoa... whatever i ate seems to be kicking in about now...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Power Papi:

This is so tiresome. How about we establish an irony-free ABBA zone?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@chris - Yeah, the post-lunch drowsies I had earlier are all gone now.
  3:18pm tomasz.:

being back the Listener Hour so i
can play a solid 60 of ABBA deep cuts
  3:18pm Pas Musique:

I love the slow fade. It's amazing. Nice touch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Scott Williams:

Playing with stuff is not ironic, it's post-modern! and sounds great
Avatar 3:19pm coelacanth:

i'm still tapping my foot.
  3:19pm tomasz.:

starting to sound like "Stretch Marks" by D. I. Dicks

This sounds the way sleep paralysis feels.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm Parq:

Gotta admit, hanging in there, waiting to see when the moment will come when it runs out of momentum altogether, is kind of cool.
  3:21pm tomasz.:

vocals sounding like Dan Bodah's show
  3:21pm Robert Moskal:

Plyaing with technique is high modernism.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Does WFMU still have a turntable that goes backwards? Mary Wing mentioned that it had been replaced by a forward-going-only model recently.
  3:21pm Brendan:

Dont sleep on Minnie Ripperton's 'Lovin You' slowed down to demon voice speed .

what drug were you on when you discovered this?
Avatar 3:21pm coelacanth:

"'such-and-such' is so 'such-and-such'" is so such-and-such.

Yeah, the anticipation is killing me. What could be next?

I may not agree w/what Power Papi says, but I'll fight to the death for zis right to say it. Well, maybe not death. I'm scared of death. I'll fight until I'm kind of tired. Then I might need to go home and lie down.
  3:24pm Anonymous Coward:

I think I'm hearing the Love Theme From Twin Peaks in the tones of the slowed down dancing queen.

@Ike: "zis?"
  3:26pm Brendan:

Damnit Tony! Put a lid on it. ABBA is just reaching Sunno))) speed
  3:26pm tomasz.:

Pythagoras said that music is cool because its structure reflects the architecture of the universe, but Pythagoras also said you shouldn't eat beans because the souls of the dead live in them, so caveat emptor with that guy. RIP Tony Conrad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Ike:

Anyway, I like very slow Abba, but I also like bitchy comments. I'm not sure what my point is. Do I have a point? Is there a point to anything? Why are we here? In the universe, I mean, not WFMU. I know why we're at WFMU.
Avatar 3:27pm coelacanth:

yeah. some geniuses are wacko.
Avatar 3:28pm βrian:

The souls of the dead persist as oligosaccharides? That makes some sense.
Avatar 3:28pm glenn:

i use the pythagorean theorem every day. how many other theorems can you say that about?

one thing about the universe, when it hits, you feel lots of pain

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Cliff:

No, it's Genesis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Parq:

From Genesis through Revelation ...
Avatar 3:40pm coelacanth:

i wonder if gnosis is a root of genesis.
  3:43pm Brendan:

Its not ABBA played backwards. All of their records are pallindromic.

@Glenn, that breaks my freakin' heart! (as does the record).
Avatar 4:14pm Cecile:

This is great:
Oar was the worst selling record in Columbia Records history, and 2nd worst was the Hampton Grease Band's Music to eat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm Mister Dobalina:

I see Tom Verlaine often in the city, he is usually at this one location. Will talk to him about this track next time I see. He's a bit shy or just doesn't want to be approached, but he is cool once you chat him up.
  4:15pm Dean:

@?: *That's* what it sounded like. Thanks for clearing up the fog.
  4:20pm Dean:

Lene Lovich plays on this Verlaine tune.
